Singer-host Billy Crawford and his former girlfriend Nikki Gil
MANILA - Singer-host Billy Crawford said he is happy over reports his former girlfriend Nikki Gil is now moving on from their controversial break-up.
Gil recently confirmed she's dating a non-showbiz guy.
"Well, everyone should. Mas hindi nagmo-move on yung ibang tao kaysa sa amin. So, we are just happy, that's all it is," Crawford said on Monday after he renewed his contract with Universal Records.
The "It's Showtime" host also said he has likewise moved on and is courting co-host Coleen Garcia.
Crawford is now vocal about his feelings towards Garcia.
"Well why not? Everyone should just be happy and everyone should just show their feelings, regardless of what it is," he said.
On reports that he and Garcia are already a couple but are just pretending that they're not, Crawford said: "Gusto ko yung mas alam nila kaysa sa aming dalawa. Alam mo, we are exclusively dating. I mean we are not seeing other people. It's just a label, to be honest with you, sabihin nila 'sila na' or whatever, kaligayahan na ng tao yon sabihing girlfriend-boyfiend na sila. Pero it's just what we feel about each other. We are still taking our time."
"I enjoy her company. We enjoy each other's company. We go out with friends. Nakakatawa nga yung laging comments na nakikita namin na 'lagi silang magkasama' eh malamang nililigawan ko. It makes no sense kung hindi. Bahala na yung mga tao. Alam mo, judgmental minsan ang mga tao di natin mako-control. As long as I know where I stand, where I am happy and hopefully it makes her happy, so that's it."
